WA man lost job from COVID-19 and won Oz Lotto
After losing his job as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lucky man from Western Australia won Division One in the $10 Million Oz Lotto. Although he wasn’t the only winner, he walked away with $5.8 million!
The young father was buying groceries for his 3-year-old daughter when he spotted the newsagency. He decided to buy a ticket on a whim and see what happens.
After finding out about his win, he was over the moon. He said, “I just want to go home and hug my daughter. I always say that life could be a dream, and this certainly feels like one. I’m always reading the news about Lotto winners and never thought it could be me”.
He hadn’t thought too much about how he was going to spend his winnings, but he knew that he was going to buy his brother a house, his mum a car, and set up his daughter’s future. What an incredibly selfless way for him to spend his winnings.
Congratulations to the lucky family.
